Dr. Petrosoniak’s work addresses procedural skill acquisition in trauma and emergency medicine. He designs curricula for technical skills training for both residents and staff physicians. His research focus is how rare, life-saving technical skills are taught as there is little evidence to guide the optimal design of simulation-based technical skills training. Dr. Petrosoniak is seeking to better define the role of deliberate practice and mastery learning for the instruction of life-saving technical skills.
He is the principal investigator for a multi-centre (Canada and USA), randomized trial to compare simulation-based deliberate practice with standard training for bougie-assisted cricothyroidotomy performance. (funded by Physicians Services Incorporated)
